FORT TOTTEN, N. DAKOTA,
JULY 5, 6, 7, 8, 1906.
On ^Wednesday evening July 4.
Rt. Rev. Bishop J. Shanleyof North
Dakota, was expected at St. Je-
rome's Mission, Crow Hill, where
the Catholic Congress of Sioux In-
dians from Fort Totten, Crow Creek,

around, the green prairie was dotted
Preparations had been made some
d ys before for the reception of the

Ambrose O. S. B. of St. Stephan, S.

on the Crow CreeK and Lower Brule
Reservation, and Rev. Father Je-
rome of tne Fort Totten Mission,
The members of St. Joseph's and
St. - Mary's Societies with tneir ban-
ners and regalia were at the Mission
awaiting the arrival of the Bisnop,
and when he approached gave him
a hearty greeting and welcome, after-
which ne spoke to tnem and told
them the order to be followed tne
next day, July 5, the opening of tne
Congress. Tnen, the Bishop and
visitino- clergy continued tneir jour-
nev to tne Seven Dolors Mission,
five miles east, wnere tney received
a cordial welcome from the Sisters.
Tnursdav morniug, members of
St. Joseph's Society came with their
carriages, to convey tae Bisnop and
Clergy to the site of the Congress,
where preparations had been made
for an ouen air service, as the people
could not bs accommodated in tne
church. They were blessed bv hav-
ing the most favorable weather du-
ring the entire congress.
At 10 o'clock a large procession
was formed at the church whence it
moved to the delicately decorated
altar, under canony, erected on an
elevated part of the prairie, opposite
the ckurch, where Divine Service
was held. First came the cross-
bearer and acolvtes, members of St.
Joseph's and St. Mary's Societies
with banners and regalia, clergy and
Rt. Rev. Bishop Shanley. Solemn
Highmass was begun at once bv
Rev. Father Bernard O. S. B., Rev.
Fathers Duffv and Reardan. deacon
and Subdeacon of the Mass. The
church choir, composed mostly of the
old school boys and girls, now fa-
thers and mothers of families, sang
the Mass "in festis solemnibus" to
tne satisfaction of all, under the dif-
ficulty of open air singing. After
the gospel Father Jerome preached
Mass was followed by Benediction
of tne Blessed Sacrament, afterwhich
the Bishop administered Confirma-
tion to a number of children and
adults, and returned in procession to

tastefullv decorated with dranerv of
the glorious stars and stripes, near
their meetinghouse, where a general
meeting of the societies was called
to order. Tne meeting was opened
bv praver, afterwhich the Bishop de-
livered a very practical, impressive,
and paternal address of which the
the following is a summarv: —
I am very much pleased to be in
vour midst to dav, to see vou assem-
bled here, from so many distant pla-
ces, and I am especially pleased, to
see. so manv voung ueoule. whose
future will be a bright and happv
one, in so far as you are now faithful
to your religion, living the lives of
practical catholics, giving good ex-
ample to vour children, following the
instructions of your good Missiona-
ries, and thus, acting according to
your faith, and under the protection
of Holv Mother Church, vou will be-
come good and useful men and wo-
The Catholic Indians have to con-
men and women should ioin this so-
ciety and thus become united to the
100.000 members, all over the Uni-
ted States, who belong to this Union.
Then, from Dakota, this Temperance
Society, will spread, become known
and established among other Indian
tribes. East and West. The mem-
bers will hold meetings from time to
time, will wear a little badge to dis-
tinguish them an4 by wnich they
can recognize eacn other. To be-
come a member, vou must be a Ca-
tend with many more difficulties and
temptations than the White man,
therefore be united, stand firmly to-
gether and help each other to fight
against evil influences-
There are two great dangers, by
which you are surrounded and of
which, I wish to speak to you to-day.
You krjow the foundation of a good
christian family is the union between
husband and wife. This union you
contracted before the altar of God
and with the blessing of God Al-
rnightv. There vou received the tholic and receive the Sacraments: at
grace of God to enable you. to lead
good, christian lives, to be faithful
to each other, and to bring up vour
children as good catholics. This is
the Sacrament of Matrimonv. Christ
instituted this sacrament. One man
can marry only one woman, and no-
thing can separate them but death;
one woman can marrv onlv one man
and they must stay together as long
as they live. This union cannot be
broken, there is no such thing as di-
vorse allowed in our church; what
God has joined together let no man
put asunder. You cannot be a ca-
tholic if vou put awav vour wife and
take another one. It is a great sin.
Another great danger, to which
the Indians are exposed is, the use
of intoxicating drinks, especially
whiskey. Wicked white people
iniure vou bv their bad example,
their coming among you, exposes
you to the temptation of drinking
whiskey, which steals your brain and
is a poison, thus, depriving you of
reason and health. The devil is in it.
You spend the money, which your-
selves and your families need, and
the white man laughs at the Indian
making a fool of himself. Let the
Indian keep his money and use it
for his own betterment, then he can
laugh at the white man, but. let him
imitate the example of the good
white man, hate whiskey, keep from
every place, where it is sold, and
from everv p'erson, who gives it to
you. The old Indians do not drins
so much, but, I warn you, young
men and bovs to take everv means,
to protect yourselves against this
It is for this reason, that I wish,
to-day, to establish among vou a
"Temperance Societv." It is mv
least, at Easter-time. Each one must
give his and her name, and oromise
never to drink, not onlv whiskev,
but, also, any other drinks which can
make vou drunk. At Turtle Moun-
tains, last year, the Indians drank
•'Florida Water." Nine persons
died from the effects of it. Be it un-
derstood that this Temperance So-
cietv must not. in anv wav, interfere
with the continuation of the other
Societies, already established among
you. One more Advice: Do not
sell your land. Tne white man is
ready to grasp it. Keep your land
for vour children, who, when vou are
gone will be happy to live in the
home or their fathers.
Several members of St. Joseph's
Society, in turn, responded, and ex-
pressed their good will to follow the
paternal advices of the Bishop, re-
cognized the necessity of it; and the
great harm many had done to them-
selves and families bv failing in
Rev. Father Reardan also suoke a
few words of encouragement to the
Indians, and expressed his great
pleasure, at seeing established among
them, a Unkm so productive of good
for body and soul.
Then followed the taking of the
solemn pledge. Those who 0-ave
their names to the number of eio-thv
five, came forward, stood in -the
presence of the Bishop and clergv
and whilst the Bishop extended his
hands over them, they repeated, in
loud voices, tne following words of
'•In honor of the sacred thirst of
our Lord on the Cross, I promise, to
abstain from all intoxicating drinks,
and I humbly implore the Grace of
earnest desire that old and young God, to keep this pledo-e ."

In conclusion, the Rt. Rev. Bi-
shop suoke his farewell to the In-
dians. He said, he regretted not
being able, to remain longer with
them, which would be a real pleasure
to him; expressed his entire satisfac-
tion over the' proceedings of the
Congress and tne good Work accom-
ulished, toldtnein tnat, if any ques-
tion came uu, needing explanation,

tners, the faitnful interpreters of his

upon them and on their meeting.

afternoon of July 8, wnen all in
peace and happiness, gave a hearty
shake of hands, till their next meet-

CONGRESS AT FT, TOTTEN.
(By Father Bernard of Fort Yaies, N. Dak.)
Whose heart should not rejoice at
the grand spectacle presented to us
a few davs ago bv the great Con-
gress held at St. Jerome's church,
Crow Hill, Fort Totten. What heart
could possibly refrain from express-
ing its feeling of happiness and ex-
altation at tne thought tnat more
than 2000 pious Indian Catches as-
sembled within the bowery of the
famous hill to assist at tne solemn
services of trie cnureu in open air and
to be strengthened bv the words of
tne renowned Father Jerome, U. S. B.
words spoken with such tender
emotion and so deep of meaning.
Indeed all the Indians highly apre-
clated it and the priests present with
their esteemed Bisnop were greatly
edified bv the pious demeanor of the
humble congregation. Julv 5. 6, 7,
were m effect red letter days for the
Oatnolic Indians of Fort Totten,
Standing Rock Agency, Fort Ber-
tnold, Crow Creek and Sisseton; for
during these davs was revived again
the tone spirit of the church, name-
ly to live together in union and love
and to bestow upon each other the
kiss of peace. Tne singing during
the many sessions was exceptionally
good and for it the Oatnolic Indians
of Fort Totten deserve tne greatest
praise. What zeal, patience and love
must it not have cost the good Fa-
wier Jerjm^ and the Yen. Sisters in
instructing so well the children and
the poor old Indians? But all has been
accomplished and the result is ex-
ceedingly gratifving, Tnat some
verv insruotive and highly edifving
speeches were made need not be
mentioned; as the Indians are known
for their power of eloquence and flu-
encv of speech. What was tne most
gratifving and the most acceptable
to all was the solemn pledge tan en
by 85 persons, men and women, in
tne presence of the Rt. Rev. Bi-
shop and six priests to abstain for
life from all intoxicating' liquors.
It was a new phenoruen and was
received witn great applause. May
tne number of tnose w;no so soleinhly
pledged themselves to the good
cause of temperance , speedily in-
crease and bring forth a multitude,
of meritorious works.
All are aware of the terrible con-
sequences of intoxication and wnat
havoc - it has wrought among, the
whites, wnat evil it is bringing forth
among tne Indians tne Missionaries
are onlv familiar, with it. T nis move
is therefore in tne right direction
and the best worK of an Indian Con-
Another verv pleasing feature of
the congress was the untiring zeal
of tne good Grey Nuns, who at all-
times inaKe it a point, of doing their
best. Tne visiting clergy and tne
Misssionaries extend tneir heartfelt
thank to the courtesv and hospitality
of tne good hearted Sisters.
It must not be forgotten that the
Catholic Indians of Fort, Totten,
have tried their best to be royal
entertainers and give of their best
to tne visiting Indians of tfne, North
DaKota diocese. An entire vear
was spent by them for the collection
of the different articles used up dur-
ing the sessions of the congress and
more tnali 600 dollars were deposit-
ed into the treasury for this purpose.
Tne Congress at Fort Totterl must
be considered a grand success owing
to the able management of tneir
President, John Strait and his wor-
thy associates, and writer of these
lines hopes to see many sucn happy

ST. BENEDICT'S MISSION,
STANDING ROCK, AG'CY.
(The picture of St. Benedict's church is
oh the front page.)
Rt. Rev. John N. Stariha, Bishop
of Lead. S. Dakota, arrived at the
Mission Saturday afternoon, June 23,
and was cordially and solemnly re-
ceived bv the pupils and teachers of
the school and by the members of
the Indian St. Joseph's and St. Ma-
ry's Societies who were present in
large numbers as thev were likewise
on Sunday morning, when they ac-
companied His Lordship to church.
After Hightnass the Rt. Rev. Bishop
delivered a vel'v forcible sermon in
terms well chosen for all present,
Catholics and Non-Catholics, about
the duties of a Christian and the
courage with which he should pro-
fess his faith, which was listened to
with great attention. Seventv chil-
dren and adults received tne Sacra-
ment of Confirmation. In the after-
noon the pupils of the school o-ave a
reception to the High Guest in the
school hall, where they entertained
the Bishop and a great many people
with a somewhat lengthy pro-
gramme, the different numbers' of
wiiicn tnev performed and carried
out to tne evident satisfaction r of all
present. The Bishop addressed the
cnildren and teachers in fatherlv
words expressing his great gratifh-
cation in regard to all he had seen
and witnessed in church and school
since his arrival at tne Mission. He
also expressed himself in a nighly
satisfactory manner about the bar-
tnonv existing between the school
and the Agency, as he was very glad
to meet on this occation also the
wew Agent. Major W. L. Belden
and many of his empoyees, and wisn-
ed that these cordial relations would
never cease to exist as tne union
and faithful cooperation of churcn
and state would not fail to work for
the greatest benefit of the Indians
entrusted to the care of both.
On Monday the Bishop was for
several hours with tne members of
St, Joseph's and St. Marv's Societies
in tneir meeting house. Several of
their spokesmen addressed ther Bi-
shop expressing their joy to have
him again in their midst ; visiting
this farthest and most remote mission
in his diocese on a great around way
through South Dakota, Nebraska and
lOA\a, having to contend with poor
and verv un satisfactory R. R. con-
nections, and at places with hard and
difficult roads on account of late
heavy rain storms. The Bishop paid
great attention to every thing the
Indians had to say and took great
pains to answer their questions and
doubts: He was especially well
pleased to hear them ask and pray,
that church and state should do their
utmost to prevent and exterminate
the divorce evil that had crept in
also among them as an evil fruit and
bad effect of a misunderstood, false
civilization. He also was verv much
gratified to hear from them, that
there was a temperance movement
going on among them and a temper-
ance Societv established bv them.
He encouraged them greatly in this
undertaking, and promised them to
second their praiseworthy efforts
along these lines by every possible
means, and desired that the temper-
ance cause be especially advocated
bv them at the next Congress to be
held at Pine Ridge, S. D. during
July. All were highly pleased over
the pleasent meeting, and received
his blessing with the full conviction
that they had in Bishop Stariha a
true Shepherd of their Souls, a lov-
ing Father and a true Friend.
